The title of the book must be across the top of the design/page. It is called, "In the Time of Man." In smaller print beneath should be the words "A Novel." The author's name belongs on the bottom of the page. "James C. Moore." Either under my name or next to it should be the words "New York Times Bestselling Author." These can lead into my name or be used as a subheading or all along a single line to save space, if type size is not too small. Either jpeg or tiff tif formats are acceptable to Amazon. Dimensions: Minimum 500 x Maximum 1280 pixels
• Minimum of 500 pixels, horizontally
• Maximum of 1280 pixels, vertically
Save at 72 dots per inch (dpi) for optimal viewing on the web. Please do not use any type of border. I want the design to appear as a book cover on a shelf. Please use colors. I see red and/or black as central but can be convinced of anything that works.
The iconic images in this narrative can help guide design. They include but are not limited to: UFOs, ETs, deserts, Monument Valley, the sun, stars, Africa, TV, planets, the Milky Way, wilderness, research labs, skinny, sick people, horizons, cattle, cities, large airplanes, etc.
I am looking for a design that suggests both mystery and an answer, if such a thing is possible. I don't want to be graphically overwhelmed. Simple is always the most elegant. But it has to be powerful.
